warmwater shrimp from Brazil for the period February 1, 2007, through 
January 31, 2008. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, 
Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request 
Administrative Review, 73 FR 6477 (February 4, 2008). The Department 
received timely requests from the petitioner,\1\ and the Louisiana 
Shrimp Association, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from Brazil. On April 7, 2008, the Department 
published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil 
with respect to 43 companies. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from 
Brazil, Ecuador, India and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of 
Administrative Reviews, 73 FR 18754 (April 7, 2008) (Initiation 
Notice).
    The Department stated in its initiation of this review that it 
intended to rely on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data to 
select respondents. See Initiation Notice. However, our review of the 
CBP database showed no entries of certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
originating in Brazil, subject to AD/CVD duties, during the period 
February 1, 2007 to January 31, 2008. See April 9, 2008, Memorandum to 
the File from Kate Johnson and Rebecca Trainor entitled ``Release of 
POR Entry Data from CBP''. We released the results of our CBP data 
query to interested parties and invited them to comment on the CBP data

comments, which we addressed in the May 29, 2008, Memorandum to James 
Maeder, Director, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations from Kate Johnson and

entitled ``Intent to Rescind Administrative Review.''
    On April 30, 2008, we sent a ``No Shipments Inquiry'' to CBP to 
confirm that there were no shipments or entries of frozen warmwater 
shrimp from Brazil during the POR. We received no information from CBP 
to contradict the results of our data query that there were no 
shipments or entries of subject merchandise to the United States during 
the period of review (POR).

that the Secretary may rescind an administrative review if there were 
no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the

merchandise during the POR, we are rescinding this review of the
